Is Squerciati John Jakobson’s Daughter?
Some court documents were brought up by some unknown entities claiming that John R. Jakobson (a late financier) is Marina’s real father. Do keep in mind that he is Maggie Wheeler’s (also an actress) father. It was due to some documentation and Jakobson being rich because Marina wasn’t mentioned in any of his wills.
All this happened in 2019 when some documents pointed out that Jakobson was paying for Marina’s nanny and was also paying her child support. Her tuition fees, for Northwestern and Dalton, were also paid by John Jakobson.
All this evidence suggests that Marina Squerciati is the actual daughter of the late financier John R. Jakobson.
Later, Marina admitted that she is John Jakobson’s Illegitimate daughter and fighting her case for her inheritance in his father’s belongings.
